Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

ROOT LOGIN /dev/pts/int FROM string


This syslog message indicates that someone has logged in remotely as root on a pseudo-terminal from the system specified after the FROM keyword.


For security reasons, it is a bad practice to allow root logins from anywhere other than the console. To restrict superuser logins to the console, remove the comment from the CONSOLE line in /etc/default/login.
